Kalmar extends Malaysian flour mill's lifespan

Kalmar extends Malaysian flour mill's lifespan

(Posted on 20/05/19)

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has been awarded a contract to perform a comprehensive refurbishment of two unloader cranes for leading Malaysian flour-milling company Malayan Flour Mills Berhad (MFM). The order was booked in Cargotec's 2019 Q1 order intake and the work is scheduled to be completed during the beginning of Q2 2020.

MFM is Malaysia's leading wheat-flour milling company, with operations in Lumut and Pasir Gudang of Malaysia, Jakarta of Indonesia, as well as in both northern and southern Vietnam. The company imports wheat from suppliers in Canada, Australia, the USA and Eastern Europe, and also processes corn, soybeans and other products. The upgrade project covers two cranes used for unloading raw materials from ships at MFM's Lumut facility; the cranes have been in operation for more than 30 years, and the refurbishment and upgrade programme will extend their lifespan by five years.

Kalmar will be responsible for the planning, engineering and execution of the entire project. The scope covers crane relocation and heightening as well as leg-frame extensions and structural modifications to the booms to enable them to serve larger ships. In addition, the transfer chutes, conveyor systems and other elements will also be modified accordingly.  

Dr. Tan Leong Chee, Engineering General Manager, MFM: "Kalmar has a solid track record in these kinds of crane upgrade projects, and their technical capabilities and expertise speaks for itself. They were clearly the best partner to work with to help us get more value from the cranes, which are a vital part of our Lumut operation."

Ismo Matinlauri, Vice President, Solution Sales APAC, Kalmar: "This new order is yet another tangible example of our slogan in action: any crane, any job, anywhere. We're delighted to be able to support MFM by helping them to extend the performance, capabilities and lifetime of their existing crane equipment and look forward to building a strong relationship with them moving forward."

Kalmar offers the widest range of cargo handling solutions and services to ports, terminals, distribution centres and to heavy industry.
